NASSAU, Bahamas (Sporting Alert) — Jamaica’s dominance at the Carifta Games is well on course to continue this year as the Caribbean powerhouse head into Monday’s final day with a commanding lead in the medal count.
Jamaica started day two on Sunday with four medals, including two golds and then closed out the final session of the day with three more gold medals – winning three of the four 4x100m relays.
After losing the 100m Jazeel Murphy ran storming second leg in helping the Under-20 boys win gold 39.92 seconds.
“We had to do it for our country and for one of our teammates (Michael O’Hara) who had the chicken pox,” Murphy said.
Omar McLeod also closed out his final Carifta Games with a gold medal run in the U-20 400m hurdles and he said after his performance at the Jamaica Boys and Girls Champs, that was the plan.
“My plan was to just go out and execute and have fun, as I really wanted the gold. I was in great form and I wanted to end my Carifta career on a high,” McLeod said in the Jamaica-Gleaner.
There will be no morning session action, but the final day will start at 2:00 pm local time with U-17 girls’ Javelin Throw.
The finals of the 800m, 200m and the exciting 4x400m relays are all set for Monday’s final day of competition of the 2013 Carifta games.
